Round #5 of the UCI BMX World Cup took Joris Daudet to Sakarya, Turkey for the first time. Joris was looking to continue his Podium finishes after the last rounds in Colombia, and on Day 1, he did just that. Taking the early lead, Joris had a good back and forth battle with Simon Marquart all the way to the finish line, where Simon would edge out Joris for the win on Day 1
After a few big weeks of racing with results less that what Joris expected, he regrouped and headed off to Tom Sawyer EP park for the USA BMX Derby City Nationals with a ready too win attitude. Derby City is one of Joris favorite tracks and from the start of things on Friday, it showed in his riding. Joris was on point lap after lap in Louisville and on Friday night, he finished the day off with a win in the main event
For the years, people have asked us at BRG why we didn’t offer a Carbon Fork. Our answer had always been the same “Until we can make the best Carbon for BMX racers, we will stick with Chromoly.” We finally have designed, tested by our Pro Team of Connor Fields and Joris Daudet, and produced what we feel is the best Carbon fork for BMX racing, the IKON Tapered 24” Carbon Pro Fork.
